WALLOPS ISLAND, Va. (AP) - A problem in the payload has delayed the test flight of a suborbital sound rocking from NASA's Wallops Island Facility on Virginia's Eastern Shore.
The space agency says the problem would have interfered with transmission of data during the flight.
The launch was scheduled for Thursday morning. NASA says a new launch date hasn't been determined.
The three-stage vehicle's flight is meant to support high-altitude space science research.
